  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 apples, peeled and cored
  • sugar, butter and cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/3 cups hot water
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg


Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening. Add milk; stir to form soft dough. On a lightly floured board, knead to shape then roll out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 6 squares, about 6 to 7-inches each. Place an apple on each square. Top each apple with a little sugar, a dab of butter and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Bring dough up to cover apple and pinch edges to seal. Place in greased pan, sealed edges under.

Combine brown sugar, butter, hot water, nutmeg and cinnamon; pour over dumplings. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake until done.

needs a lot of changes, Member livigwen1978

First, the sauce recipe needs to be doubled and divided. Add 2tsp of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 2 pads of butter to the center of each apple. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 min, then at 300 for 20 minutes, because the tops get too brown before the rest of the dough will cook. Keep basting the other half of the sauce over the tops of the dumplings for the last 10 minutes of cooking. I hope they come out better than the original recipe!
